The “Couples Therapy” doc tells TMZ she’s been talking to several single people who are grappling with the new reality of self-quarantine and trying not to go stir-crazy, and she says the best way to deal with it … wake up with a plan!!!
Dr. Jenn says for those working from home, this means starting each day with a purpose and a schedule — as if you were still going into the office — and to continue focusing on hobbies, creative endeavors or self-care when work hours are over.
